Re: WIP - Fedora 8 theme



If you are planning to work on it, I'll be glad to give a hand for
testing and integrating it for f8.

that`s what i try.. but i will first mockup everything because it looks like i forgot a few pieces :) like right mouse click (menu pops up) and the menubar inside a window.

 Surely, your (would-be) work can be
pushed to the official crystal source code(upstream).

well.. that`s nice but not what i want. i want to make a theme for fedora with the goal of making it the defualt theme for Fedora 8.

To me, your idea will be easy to implement. And considering the fact,
that F8 development cycle is about 5 months. Hence it will be quick to
create such theme for F8.

i have no doubt that i can`t finish this theme well before F8 goos final.
i have vacation now for about 2 1/2 month so more than enough play time for this theme.

and a brainstorm.. would it be cool to have a brushed mac like background in the menu stuff?
so kinda like the top part of the buddy list in this image:

or would a soft gradient be cool? that`s the top part of the computer window in the avove link.

No ! Actually this is the official window decorator of the kubuntu distribution.
If you have installed crystal, you will see the themes of kubuntu
(edgy,fiesty),vista,aqua,svg.. are included. The crystal development
team work closely with kubuntu. I don't think they will object fedora
choosing it as default as well, (if it would be)

Crystal provides many themes, some screenshots on fedora:
- kubuntu-dapper: http://flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=537757887&size=o
see how the close button hovers to red
- kubuntu-feisty: http://flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=537757889&size=o
see how the minimize button hovers to blue
- vista: http://flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=537757891&size=o

Take a look at
http://tux.u-strasbg.fr/~chit/crystal-1.0.4/pics/
These themes shipped by the crystal source code.

You can design a new fedora theme of crystal. All you have to work on
is the artwork,
which is actually the goal of this mailing list :) Thus how the icons
will hover will not be your problem.

Here is the 1.0.4 rpm, I'll be pushing soon:
RPM : http://tux.u-strasbg.fr/~chit/RPMS/crystal-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm
SRPM: http://tux.u-strasbg.fr/~chit/RPMS/crystal-1.0.4-1.src.rpm

meanwhile you can do some testing and report any weird issues if any.

I don't know yet, if KDE4 will make it before F8. But if it does, you
might consider the time and effort you are putting for 3.5.x. The
"oxygen" icon set of KDE4 is simply great.
